Mixed Media Botanical Series

Most of the natural material used in this work is either from our yard in Lighthouse Park or from the surrounding subtropical maritime hammock. I have attempted to weave and combine these botanical shapes with man made items such as  metal, buttons, wood veneer and fishing gear. The work was inspired by the gestural rhythm of the clinging/hanging/growing flora and the patterns of the connected network of botanical life around me.
